    • The law of Sin? Or the Law of man? (Last post by Gisteron)
    • Quote: ... I have done research and compiled my data to share with everyone. Quote: ... they also said they did some research and they know they didn't... Quote: ... I am merely going based off what I remember... Good. Now we can go on and share opinions, if we want. I look forward to it. :)
    • What would you expect from a knight and apprentice... (Last post by Metsu Desal)
    • Quote: Hi Metsu - you might well agree with my opinion that there's no such thing as a standard 'knight / apprentice' relationship. As far as I can see they're all different :) I don't expect anything in particular from my apprenticeship. There has been plenty of learning but often lessons don't come in the form you can predict or expect (from either the perspective of the apprentice or the Knight) - and for me that's what makes an apprenticeship dynamic and most relevant. Having said that - your expectations don't sound the slightest bit onerous or outrageous. Proteus and I are probably in contact every few days and Skype video calls are great for being able to see each other face to face - even if you happen to live on different continents. Its not always possible to physically meet and I imagine the majority of apprenticeships complete perfectly well without that interaction. I might even go so far as to say that if the apprenticeship completes in the manner that you expected then it probably hasn't been the most effective apprenticeship ;) I agree with you in regards to it going as you would expect, I also agree that there's no standard, my expectations aren't necessarily what I would hold other knights and apprentices to, ultimately my expectation of regular contact is really just something I would prefer rather than adamantly require.
    • The Joy of Goth (Last post by Loudzoo)
    • I read this article and thought I'd share it: www.theguardian.com/society/2015/aug/28/...od-for-mental-health As someone who has found great solace in melancholy music at certain times in my life it resonated strongly with me.
    • Hell: An ancient myth or, a factual spiritual pris... (Last post by Corwinani)
    • Could You imagine that anybody from any reason lock you inside some labyrinth of tunnels underground and after the death of Your body, Your self-awareness stay there as a lost soul, forever (for thousands of years) wander and searching for the way out, thinking how to get out ? After some time You will certainly forget what actually you are looking for - no joking, but all the time sleepless aware of yourself..... Why You cannot just die and go to where all other souls going after death? Because this is designed prison for Your soul ... under the labyrinth there are underground rivers and together with special ceramics stones are creating some very special kind of energy which human soul cannot pass over. And of course only earthquake could change it, which did not happen in many thousands of years. And on the ground the special kind pyramid has been build so you will never escape the way up. This i imagine the Hell must be. Actually this possibly real and there are certain indication . In case of interest please see Bosnian pyramid underground on Youtube .... Let the Force be with You
    • Chi? (Last post by Jeriko)
    • I have a little experience here in that my father was a Tai Chi Chuan practitioner and at his most focused he was a rather good teacher. Connection to his chi centre, (the dan tien, which is located 2 inches below the naval) was indeed strengthened through years of chi Kung, form repetition and pushing hands. From what i remember Chi kung was one of the easiest things to fit in to a busy life as in its essence it is standing still but it kind of meditation as well. I would say though that i do not believe it's utilisation can be achieved through reading. My father studied and trained for over 16 years and taught for a further 4-6 and i still remember him coming home and getting me to be his training partner after class because he had made discoveries and advancements that he needed to test. I'm not a small guy and i have gone through doors and almost through windows from a simple and soft 1 inch punch from my father. The strength that can be obtained is unbelievable and difficult to convey in words. I think you need to feel it to understand. I believe the book Cultivating the Chi by Chen Kung may be of use to you.
    • Your Cave of Evil (Last post by Sven One)
    • That is really intresting. Perhaps maybe thats true maybe when you go to be with The Force you leave The Cave?
    • My experience (Last post by Katash Weivorki)
    • Intriguing. I have had moments, though they are rare. It has primarily happened in moments of extreme emotional release. My abilities lay in illusions, and perception. If you would like to discuss things of either nature, I am happy to oblige. PM or even Skype if you would like.
    • Positive Energies/ Negative Energies affect you, T... (Last post by Katash Weivorki)
    • I do believe all that was said is quite true, though for thought, and contemplation I would like to bring up something else. In my experience yes a collection of energies is fairly difficult at first. And true it is mostly the cause of external interference. But let's say it's something within, turn your eye inwards, and a whole new world will become visible. To focus your attention at combating the mix outside, we often do not realize that what is wrong, merely starts with ourselves.

    • Don't crave for more (Last post by Whyte Horse)
    • Quote: Quote: It might work for someone else. I heard of this millionaire who sold everything and went to cambodia to help poor kids. Scott Neeson article Doesn't work for me - married + two kids :-) I have a wife and 2 kids as well. Nowadays I'm something similar to what Adder just said. I started by providing 1% of my food and worked my way up. Now I'm at about 90%. The amount of money it takes to support myself now is maybe a couple hundred dollars a month. I can make that much by substitute teaching a few days a month. At any rate, this just randomly came up on my screen while I was typing this: "If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way." -Alan Watts
